In October 2021, Ericsson filed the initial lawsuit, alleging that Apple had unfairly attempted to reduce the royalty fees. The Swedish company was subsequently charged of using “strong-arm tactics” to resume patents, according to a complaint the iPhone maker filed in December 2021.

With the results of the settlement and ongoing IPR business with all other licensees, Ericsson projected fourth-quarter licencing income for intellectual property rights (IPR) of 5.5–5.0 billion Swedish crowns ($530.3–$578.5 million) on Friday.
